    I've always been a fan of Exedy clutches. I've always had good luck with them, and they are reasonably priced.

    As a dd I would use a stage 3 4 puck sprung cm clutch, they have great grab and drive almost like stock clutches. from what i noticed is a 4 puck is a lil stiffer and grabs a lil faster, making it a bit harder to dd. As for the 6 puck...well it drives like a stock clutch but it rattles while taking off in first gear. it also dose this when going in reverse.

    Over all I liked the 4 puck sprung a hell of a lot better than the 6 puck(im running a 6 puck now) but you live in LA so.....i dont know. the best thing with clutches is trial and error.

    if its a stock car and not really gonna go over 200WHP I would say stick with a oem clutch or a stage 1 or 2 of any name brand. with the kind of traffic in LA i would stick to a clutch that feels a lot like a stock clutch.

    you definitly dont need a pucked clutch if its going to be a street car with 200whp. driving the car would be a pain in the ass

    i recommend a stage 2 full face Kevlar disk, with stage 3 pressure plate from clutchnet.com their customer service sucks, but their clutches are the shit. bites so nice, and its really easy on the leg. unless you have a shit load of power stay away from the puck type, they eat up your flywheel if you power shift, and usually have a harsher engagement then a full face disk.
